Vesper is for real by Nambroth Vesper is for real by Nambroth
I've loved costumes since I was a tiny person, and my parents would have to deal with me having Halloween every day of the year. The love is still there, but adulthood requires a lot of time and money flow to other interests and requirements. But, I've always wanted to make myself a cool bird or gryphon costume. A dragon would be cool too, but like many birds, the long and elegant neck is not within my skill range to create at this point!

So, given the opportunity, I decided to make a crazy Vesper costume! [link]
Vesper is a character I've had for a while now (she's also a dragon) that has appeared in :iconwindsonde:. She.. uh. yeah.

So I made this nonsense entirely with exception to the 'blank' underneath, which is a resin base with hinges so the beak opens and closes as I open and close my mouth. :iconcrystacian: made the blank (she's awesome!) as I don't have a way to cast resin here, and then I sculpted and sanded and sculpted and sanded and painted and added fur and feathers and eyes and such.

I painted the gloves and carefully added all the talons.

Her shirt has fizzzzsssh on it.

This is very silly, but it's fun!

SPECIAL THANKS TO MY FRIEND MARTIN FOR TAKING THIS PHOTO!

Looks like some impressive work on it. How hard is it to see out of, though?

Not too bad at all. The problem isn't lack of vision.. it is with my lack of glasses!

And here I thought gryphons had eagle-eyes. ;P Maybe you could build an old pair directly into the mask?

Nah, there's just not enough room. In order for it to be responsive to my jaw, it is pretty close to my face. :) I can deal with it okay.

This is so cool! :la:

How cool would it be if all the Windsonders had costumes of their characters? :P We could host a "WindsondeCon" where we'd all get together and play Windsonde IRL (Sorry, my train of thought derailed!)

That is flippin' awesome!!! Those eyes...and the beak moves? :D I think you should take/share some detail shots...I'd really like seeing the face and gloves/talons closer. Fun projects are fun and made of win, because they're enjoyed so much. :)

Thanks! The details is amazing...the scaling on the gloves is great and the expressions that can be pulled with the mask! How good/bad was the wear? Hot/stuffy or not too bad?

It wasn't hot at all... it was November when I wore it, but mostly inside. I stepped outside a few times when I felt warm, and opened the beak wide and it cooled me off quickly. It was really comfortable, unlike my old mask attempts!
